Here is the back story for all who care:

Last Fall we were working on The Next Great American Band – essentially, an Idol for bands. On an episode we had in which the song selection was to be Judges Choice, one of our judges, Sheila E, had recommended for one of our contest bands, the song, “Shout To The Lord” by Hillsongs from Australia. When my associate, Max, was trying to find that song, he ran across “Shout Unto God” by Hillsong United. We found it by accident, but both Sheila & our executive producer, Nigel, loved it. So, Nigel kept it in the back of his mind until he found the perfect application for it & we are all quite delighted to get to be able to have your song performed by our Idol Finalists on this very special episode, our benefit show, Idol Gives Back!
